It’s time to take that vacation of a lifetime. Pack your bags, we’re going to France. Yeah, there’s the Eiffel Tour, great wine and what not, but the real attraction next year will be a premiere metal festival featuring Trivium, Emperor, Carcass, Hatebreed, Behemoth, Crowbar and more and over 120 other bands. Hellfest 2014 is set to take place June 20 through the 22 in Clisson, France. The annual event began in 2006 on the same grounds featuring bands such as Def Leppard, Volbeat, NoFX, KISS, Danzig and Stone Sour on last year’s bill.
Next year’s fest gets a tad more sinister, with more than 120 bands rounding out the lineup, with additional names yet-to-be confirmed. Check the start of the list below.
UPDATE: Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Slayer and many others have been added to the lineup. Here is the initial lineup previously announced.
Brutality Will Prevail
Downfall Of Gaia
Fueled By Fire
Mars Red Sky
